Provisional ball

Sport: Golf

If a player believes a ball to be lost, another one may be taken after telling their opponent that they are about to play a “provisional”. If, after searching for the original ball, it cannot be found, one penalty-stroke is added and the provisional ball becomes the ball in play.
